Obama takes off his Paulson mask!
US President Barack Obama has said the Senate's delay in passing his $900bn (£616bn) economic stimulus package is "inexcusable and irresponsible". He described the economic situation as "an urgent and growing crisis", which could become "a catastrophe" if the Senate failed to act. The bill includes measures to cut taxes and invest in job creation. Moderate Democrat and Republican senators have argued that the plan should be trimmed by up to $90bn.
